Fairbanks–“Fairbanks Then & Now” is a unique historical presentation hosted by the Fairbanks Igloos of the Pioneers of Alaska. Joan Skilbred and Mark Cosson have teamed up to give you an amazing time travel experience. This show features stunning images of Fairbanks and surrounding communities, that morph from one time to another using a technique called re-photography. See how Fairbanks has changed and grown over the years from the horse and buggy days to our modern metropolis of today. In addition to Fairbanks, there will also be images of Healy, Denali Park, Nenana, Chatanika, and Chena Hot Springs.
